By the end of April 200, Microsoft will hand out free copies of Windows 7 operating system to 54,000 Russian schools. Delivery of the Windows 7 media will be through the mail, in order to ensure that even the schools without an Internet connection will be able to access the operating system. "We decided to free delivery in the Russian school of Windows 7 because we consider really important to give our students and teachers the opportunity to learn and work on the most modern software,” said Nikolai Pryanishnikov of Microsoft Russia. The Redmond company did underline that the licenses associated with the free copies of Windows 7 were only valid until the end of 2010, when the First Aid agreement is set to expire. However, the free Windows 7 licenses were not part of the initial agreement between Microsoft and the Russian Federal Agency on Education. The president of Microsoft Russia reveals that the Redmond company wants the momentum of its collaboration with the Federal Agency on Education to continue.
